Past and present collide in the jagged memories of an aging chess player who longs for later-life romance in the dreamlike Argentine melodrama SUBTE-POLSKA. As a young man, Tadeusz (Héctor Bidonde) left behind his entire family and the girl he loved in Poland, to fight for the Republican Army in the Spanish Civil War. After the war was lost and the rise of fascism made it unsafe for a Jewish communist to return to Europe, he immigrated to Buenos Aires, literally going underground to help build the subway tunnels beneath the city. Now 90, he finds himself lost in reverie, desperate to recapture his mental acuity and sexual libido. As he refuses the doctor’s pills he believes responsible for robbing his lucidity and manhood, the past returns and melds with the present. Knowing that his next journey will likely be his last, Tadeusz sets about to reconnect with long-lost lovers from his youth, with help from an eccentric circle of caring friends and neighbors.
